  • fuel line shield

    Does anyone have a source for a set of fuel line shields? These are the metal plates that screw to the underside of the body and protect the fuel and brake lines on the squarebirds.

    I've heard rumor that these are being reproduced but I can't find them.

    thanks,

    I have not heard that these are reproduced yet. It is true that these are prone to rusting. Mudcan collect above them and few people realize they are there, so they are not cleaned out. I know when I removed one of them on my 1959, I found out that the brake and fuel line were nearly rusted through there.

    Call up one of the T-Bird prats vendors, I am sure they know if such a part is in the repro pipeline. Otherwise they may have used ones.

      I took my old ones to a heating and cooling company that makes air ducts they were able to bent them up. When they told me they could bend them I brought them 2 stainless steel peices.
      They came out great.

        thanks for the reply.
        I found a set on ebay for 18 bucks that were repros.

        They show up every once in a while.

        never could find out who was reproducing them though and the packaging they cam in had no mfr. information.

        Fit perfectly and look great.

          Now maybe you can help me find a 5 vane fan with the spacer for my 430 1959 T-Bird with A/C? New or used?
